Sequins and Sea Breezes: Wednesday Rant

Wednesday Rant

4/30/2014

So, you know that moment when you think you have your entire blog post planned out and all you need to do is sit down and write it then your computer crashes and you lose everything? Yeah, well if you don't consider yourself lucky! That totally happened to me last night so here I am at 6 am making up something as I go for my post today. Oh and did I mention I haven't had any coffee yet? So if this makes absolutely no sense... I plead temporary lack of caffeine insanity. 


So between my frustration with technology and the fact it's only Wednesday I'm going to take this time to complain about a few things and hope you guys still come back tomorrow. First off, I was planning on painting my nails last night but instead I got to spend the time trying to figure out what in the world my crazy computer was doing. So here I am.... with bare nails feeling completely naked. Yeah, this isn't going to work for me.


Oh and we had the biggest torrential downpour we've had in... well, I can't remember the last time... but a really long time! Not a big deal, right? Wrong. I have a love/hate relationship with DirecTV. I love getting all the channels (including NFL Sunday Ticket) but I HATE how every time it rains I lose signal. It really doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason to it either. It can be lightly raining and I will get that stupid "Searching For Signal..." message. Really? Super frustrating! I'm trying to watch or record one of my shows and I miss more than half the show because it's raining. Living in Florida this becomes a BIG problem in the summer. So now I'm computer-less and my tv is spotty so I turn to my trusty phone, because it never fails you, right? This seems like a great chance to catch up on my blog reading/commenting so I start getting into it and I write this super long comment on this post and dun dun dunnnhhhhhh. 
 

Captcha hell. Yeah. There is nothing more annoying than trying to read those tiny little letters or numbers that don't have any rhyme or reason and are squished together in the most ridiculous way possible on a tiny cell phone screen. Especially not when you're already annoyed. I'm not even going to lie; I've actually given myself a rule, if I get the captcha wrong twice I give up. So I am extremely sorry if I didn't comment back on any one's blogs yesterday it just turned into one of those days! That ended much like this


But hey, it's a new day and it's hump day so it's all downhill from here, right? If not, there's always more wine! :) Happy Hump Day dolls! Oh and I'm trying to respond to comments via e-mail now so if you don't get a reply on here check your Inbox! :)

  3. Girl this post is freaking awesome I can actually see you with bare nails stabbing away getting this post together and you know what?? I loved it!!! I have had bare man hands all week because I haven't gotten my act together. As my cheery mother would say "it's all downhill from here now" ;-) Cheers girl it's never too early for a little kahlua in your coffee xoxoxo (p.s I have lost an entire post before like had no idea what happened and I literally screamed at the top of my lungs....it was frightening for anyone in a 5 mile radius).

  4. I hate when I plan on painting my nails and then something happens and I can't - so annoying!! I would be livid if my cable went out every single time it rained - not okay!!! I'm totally fine if a blog has numbers to type up - but the words seriously annoy me!!

  6. God yesterday sucked. I concur! Although your rundown sounds worse. But the gifs make it better. Because gifs make everything better.

    Not excited about rainy season! The next few days are supposed to suck :(

  21. No no, I hate when the computer crashes. It never happens when I am just goofing around, no. Only when it is something important.

  23. Sounds like you had one really long night! I had gotten a spray tan yesterday right before the downpour so I had to hide in my car until it stopped so I wouldn't melt lol (Rach).

  27. Haha I cannot lie one bit--I LOVE post like this :) It makes me so happy to know that I am not the only person that crazy frustrating stuff happens too lol It is also so good to know that we have our RLF, Blogger Friends, and most importantly, wine to help us get through! I had to switch my direct TV I seriously would have a melt down every time it rains. Do they not understand how important it is for me to see The New Girl every week?! I hope today is a better day :)
